    Does this product exist?

    If so does anyone have any experience with them and could recommend one?

    Just to clarify, I'm looking to send the picture and audio wirelessly to do away with the DVi to HDMI cable and the Phono cable.

    I guess the only option at the moment would be something like the WDTV (think that's what it's called) which is around £100?

    I'm sure I also read one or two of the new Panny Plasmas will have wireless integrated, which I assume means you may be able to stream directly to the tv?

    1366*768 @ 60fps (24bit) requires around 1.5gbps of bandwidth before any overheads. I doubt you can do that wirelessly without spending silly amounts of cash. If it's for use with movies then you could use a WDTV or similar as suggested.

    For desktop use the only thing I can think of would be some kind of wireless AV sender designed for SDTVs (i.e. 640x480, 50 interlaced fps) rigged up to a battery. You're probably better off sticking with wired in that case :)

    Another option might be to use a wirelss kb/trackpad combo and have the laptop beside the TV.
